Miami Indian Genealogy


Miami (?Chippewa: Omaumeg, 'people who live on the peninsula'). An Algonquian tribe, usually designated by early English writers as Twightwees (twanhtwanh, the cry of a crane. Hewitt), from their own name, the earliest recorded notice of which is from information furnished in 1658 by Gabriel Druillettes (Jes. Rel.1658, 21, 1858), who called them the Oumamik, then living 60 leagues froth St. Michel, the first village of the Potawatonti mentioned by him; it, was therefore at or about the mouth of Green Bay, Wis. Tailhan (Perrot, Mémoire) says that they withdrew into the Mississippi valley, 60 leagues from the bay, and were established there from 1657 to 1676, although Bacqueville de )a Potherie asserts that, with the Mascoutens, the Kickapoo, and part of the Illinois, they came to settle at that place about 1667. The first time the French calve into actual contact with the Miami was when Perrot visited them about 1668. His second visit was in 1670, when they were living at the headwaters of Fox river, Wis.
